Why is John Porter steadily developing into my most inspired RAPS subject? I feel quite partial to the two previous Porter shrines I have made (here and here). I am astounded myself, because he is not my “favouritest” chaRActer, although he is definitely a character to enjoy both with his physical traits as well as his storylines. Well, there must be a special force at work here…
see what I did there? So it was definitely no hardship enshrining the heroic soldier – especially as there are a number of rather yummy scenes focusing on his physical attributes *ahem*.
Today’s RAPS was made for Kathy Jones and as a nod to her location, I decided on a film theme to the shrine. Dang, forgot to snap the outside!)
Hope that’s not too much for you *ggg*. But there was too much skin in that scene in Chikurubi Prison, I needed to maximise the space in the RAPS. (The Armpitage Army made me do it!!! I am innocent!!!)
A bit of a cubist RAPS – magnificent profile and some straight on goodness, too, on one “canvas”.
And when you look at the shrine as a whole, the annoying subtitle now-not-so-subtly makes sense… “Why are you weak for him?”
I am asking myself the same question… see above And I have the answer. Because he is heroic, he is courageous, he is clever, he is human, he is hot, he is uncompromising, he is good, he is goal-oriented…
He deserves all the candles.
I hope Kathy is happy with
him it. There’s a bit of me in the shrine, too – I had to cut up some film strips from my archive to make the “film roll”. And this particular film strip was proper handiwork – I processed that roll of film myself (and hand-printed some images from it, too) in my own darkroom. The set-up contains another piece of me – an image I took on holiday in Namibia. Porter-fans don’t need to be told why I chose to set up the tin in front of my Namibia photobook… (all others: Strike Back was filmed in Namibia.)
I received a parcel today from Germany. Daria aka fire–and–thunder from tumblr sent me lots of surprises in a big parcel in return for her Thorin RAPS. Obligatory peanut puffs *yay* aside – the RA glitter ball had me in stitches and also in awwws. Plus lots of other goodies – beardy RA in a frame, chocolate, a tin, some pastelly hearts (which have already been designated to another RAPS), some sparkly nail varnish (summer is coming to Ireland, too) and a customized note-book for my “Richventures”, as Daria put it. Many, many thanks, Daria – love it all! ❤
No better way to start a weekend than with a RAPS post, a parcel full of surprises and a couple of WIP RAPS on my desk. Life is not a “why?” but a “because!”
